Written by Joe Pitts
Tennessee State Representative, House District 67

Tennessee State Representative - House District 67Nashville, TN – By now we have had our fill of economic instability, stimulus, downturn, volatility or insert word here, enough to last a lifetime. The old joke about economists having predicted nine out of the last three recessions rings hollow, but true especially if you are one of the unemployed, or underemployed, trying to avoid a fiscal cliff of your own.

NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationGreenbelt, MD -Like finding a silver needle in the haystack of space, the NASA Hubble Space Telescope has produced this beautiful image of the spiral galaxy IC 2233, one of the flattest galaxies known.

Typical spiral galaxies like the Milky Way are usually made up of three principal visible components: the disk where the spiral arms and most of the gas and dust is concentrated; the halo, a rough and sparse sphere around the disk that contains little gas, dust or star formation; and the central bulge at the heart of the disk, which is formed by a large concentration of ancient stars surrounding the Galactic Center.
